I ran an interfooler for a few weeks while waiting on the last two pipes from BEGi.

I was trying to install everything I could before actually slapping the turbo on, so I mounted the intercooler and capped it off.

I seem to remember someone acting like they wanted to race when they spotted it, but don't recall the situation.

A+ for quoting myself.

Pics of my cooldude CAI bitches.


Yeah I had to remove the COPs. The car doesn't like to start in the cold weather with them.

Pic of my even cooler exhaust baffle I whipped up one day with scrap metal. The car is SO LOUD and raspy with no turbo. I hate it. 2" pipe goes inside the 3" tailpipe about 6" and is wrapped with steel wool. Works surprisingly well.

We all lol at this, but I get the feeling that one day we're all going to have to install silencers so that we don't get arrested for people thinking we have whistle tips.

-fake hood scoops and vents (some can be applied to a decent look... SOME... )
-THOSE GOD DAMN INVADER AND WIZARD BODY KITS... that arent flush with the body... lolz
-Adhesive 3A spoilers
-All 3A Racing equipment.
-fart cans welded onto the stock pipe. (i have seen some idiot that put one on AFTER the stock muffler!)

Fake sunroofs. Saw an ebay ad recently that had these listed as a Miata part. LOL

Blue headlight bulbs count as fake in my book.

I swear to god ive seen it... with a big nasty gas-less weld right in the middle of the bar that was visible from the drivers window, it wasn't even long bent tubes but pieces welded together to make a bar/hoop

was on a saturn ion, body kit, lambo doors
